Default SWF: Going Prime Time

SWF: Going Prime Time

Friday, Week 4, December 2015
I parked my BMW outside of the SWF Headquarters in New Haven and stepped out of the car. I checked my right pocket to see if my wallet was there. It was. Once I make my way onto the sidewalk, I take a moment to look at myself in the passenger’s mirror of my car. I’m wearing one of my favorite suits: a dark gray suit jacket over a white button-up and a pair of slacks, with a tie striped in different shades of gray. I knew that this ensemble would impress my boss, because he gave it to me for Christmas three years ago. I know very well that if you want my boss to take you seriously at all, you have to dress to impress.


- Jerry Eisen

I sit at my desk and look at myself in the mirror to see if there are any obvious flaws I can fix. I am wearing my usual suit: a black suit jacket, with a blue and white striped button up and a yellow tie. After looking closer at my face, I notice that I missed a spot near the corner of my mouth when I was shaving this morning. No big deal. It’s my son. I already have his respect. I agreed to this meeting against my better judgment, as my son wanted to discuss his “creative vision” for the SWF in 2016 with me. I’m missing my usual bacon-egg-and-cheese bagel at my favorite deli for this. Damn it, Jerry, this better be good.


- Richard Eisen

The Conversation
Jerry walked into his father’s office.
“Hi, Dad.”
“Hello, son. Sit down here.” Richard said, gesturing to the chair in front of him. Jerry courteously obliged.
“So, Jerry,” Richard began, “you told me that SWF has been declining and you have some ideas to help us beat our competition.”
“Well, Dad, that is the truth. I mean, let’s face it, USPW has changed the landscape of professional wrestling worldwide. They are reaching a previously unimaginable number of viewers on Reverie. And perhaps most importantly,” Jerry added, “they are making a lot of money. And that money has lured some of our top stars away.”
Richard’s previously blank facial expression turned into one of anger, as he remembered the Black Wednesday Betrayal of 2014. Jerry knew that his father might stop paying attention to him in this state, so he quickly moved forward.
“But don’t worry! SWF has a good enough roster to take over American wrestling again, and we can do it without Rich or Steve! All I’m asking for is the leeway necessary to make a few changes.”
After sitting at his desk silently and listening to his son for the past minute or so, Richard became alert once he heard the word “changes”.
“Changes?”, Richard gruffly asked. “What exactly did you have in mind?”
Jerry took a deep breath and paused for a few seconds. This was going to be a hard sell.
“Well, Dad, I have to be honest. I don’t think that our ‘crash TV’ format is helping us anymore. We were able to tap into the 18-to-34 year-old male demographic in the past with that, but nowadays, society is more… sensitive. I mean, why would you let your children watch a product as edgy as SWF can be when you can sit with them and watch a product as wholesome as USPW?”
Richard began to get that angry look on his face again. Jerry continued on.
“You know, shock factor television may have provided us with some short-term rating boosts, but we’ve always made our money from the long-running storylines. I personally think that if we put more thought into story progression and character development, the SWF would make more money than it ever has before, because character development is something USPW and TCW simply aren’t giving American wrestling fans.”
After listening to his son, Richard began to speak.
“Why does any of that matter? The SWF Empire was built upon its cutting-edge storylines and characters! We dominated in the 1980’s because we had our fingers on the pulse of popular culture at all times!”, Richard passionately argued. “From the beginning, my belief has always been - and will always be - that SWF is entertainment for the working man, and everyone else can go to hell! Or one of our competitors. I know trying to watch the last episode USPW put out was hellish.”
“Dad, this really isn’t the time for making jokes about your competitors!”, Jerry stated, trying to get the meeting back on topic. “Also, I think that the company would benefit if you spent a bit more money on contract negotiations with big names--”
“Absolutely not! Are you out of your damn mind?!”, Richard shouted. He might have been angry before, but he was furious now. “Look at the contract I gave Jack Bruce! I have no idea how we’re going to pay that off with our current financial direction! With a contract like that, I’m not going to break the bank for Tyson Baine!”
“You know what, Dad?” Jerry angrily responded. He had his father’s temper at times, and Richard’s uproar set it alight. “It kills me to say it, but the money that USPW offered Rich and Steve was not the only reason they left us!”
Richard’s facial expression suddenly changed from rage to wide-eyed shock. Upon seeing this change, Jerry’s expression changed in a similar manner. The room was silent for about 10 seconds. Then, Richard inhaled deeply. Jerry’s cheeks tingled with shame.
“Do you have any idea why I fired Peter?”, Richard calmly began. Jerry opened his mouth to respond, but before he had a chance, Richard cut him off.
“Because USPW was killing our ratings in the last few months he had the book!”, Richard yelled, louder than ever. “And not only that, but once he saw the writing was on the wall, he started making stupid suggestions like you are right now! Damn it, Jerry, I love you, but if you’re going to turn out like Peter, I have no moral objection to firing your ass!”
Richard was seething after his outburst, and Jerry was now incensed as well. “I’m not going to turn out like Peter, Dad! You just need to trust my capabilities! For once, you’ve got to have some faith in me!”
Both men became quiet after Jerry said this. Once again, Richard was the one to break the silence.
“Okay, Jerry, look.” Richard growled, with anger still obvious in his voice. “This argument is draining me physically. So listen up. You are going to help SWF beat USPW in the ratings, under my rules, and under my jurisdiction. Do you understand?”
“I understand, Dad.” Jerry reluctantly responded. After some more tense silence between father and son, Jerry stood up, and looked at his father.
“Good.” Richard said. “Nice, productive meeting we had today.”
Jerry nodded at his father, and walked out of the office.

Saturday, Week 4, December 2015
I woke up at 8:00 AM this morning to see a notification on my phone. Apparently, my dad sent me an email. I looked to see what he had written.

Quote:
Jerry,
I thought for a while about what you said during our meeting. After looking at our ratings and what our fans and stockholders have been saying, I came to a realization. There is simply no way to move forward as a company without taking risks. I see now that I blew up at you because I was afraid of taking a risk. So, I’ve decided I will let you take the Supreme Wrestling Federation in a more story-oriented, less edgy direction like you described during a meeting. However, one thing I will not compromise on is the money. The only reason why the SWF has survived as long as it has is because I have kept a fairly tight pocketbook. If I spent a lot of money to keep around stars like Rip Chord, we would have collapsed long ago. I look forward to continuing our working relationship, and I am hoping for a prosperous 2016.
Your father,
Richard Eisen
I am ecstatic. This is just the kind of shot in the arm the SWF has needed for the past few years. America, get ready, because the Supreme Wrestling Federation is going prime time.

SWF Goes Prime Time, Introduces New Show
Last night, Richard Eisen held a press conference and made two major announcements. The first major announcement was that after negotiating with current broadcast C.A.N.N., SWF's flagship television program, Supreme TV, has been moved to a prime time slot.

"Our hope with this move is that Supreme TV will be able to reach a greater audience than ever before." Richard explained. "Prime time has been historically proven to generate greater advertising revenue and ratings than our previous late evening time slot."

In addition, Eisen also revealed the creation of a new television program named Uprising. Eisen explained that Uprising is meant to be an intriguing mix of the SWF's next generation of Superstars and some of its senior talent. SWF were able to negotiate a trial run with C.A.N.N. on a late evening time slot. Eisen said that if the show did well, C.A.N.N. may consider moving it to a prime time slot like Supreme TV.

"Two hours on Supreme TV has not been enough to showcase our younger talent alongside our top Superstars. However, instead of overextending ourselves by increasing Supreme TV to three hours, we've decided a better solution would be to create a new program dedicated to showcasing our younger talent." Eisen claimed. "Our vision is that SWF fans will be exposed to a new generation of SWF Superstars through the creation of this program."

Hello, everyone! I have been predicting on diaries on this forum for almost a year now, but I have always aspired to write my own dynasty. I have a wide variety of influences for this diary, such as Eisen-verse, angeldelayette, The Final Countdown, and Beejus. My hope is that this diary will become popular on the forum, and I will be legitimized as more than just a follower. I hope you enjoy the shows!

Default The Return

Hey, everyone! I know that it has been a long, long time since you guys saw any activity here. Well, I actually ran the first edition of SWF Supreme TV all the way back in July, but I became discouraged due to the apparent lack of interest from you guys, and nothing came of it. That fact has bothered me ever since, because I never stopped coming up with new ideas for this playthrough. Looking back, the introduction was very compelling as well. So, as the New Year begins, I'd like to say that I plan to work on this in the new year and make it the talked-about project I always wanted it to be. The results from that first episode of SWF Supreme TV will be up very soon.

Hey James The Animator,

I will be following this as you move forward with it. I can tell you that normally there's not a lot until the first prediction contest has been posted or until a show has been posted. That can be the same whether you're a veteran writer or a rookie or somewhere in between. Those are some definite good changes to start with SWF. Look forward to reading the first show and seeing where you are taking things.

I'll be reading as well. I love reading SWF diaries. I've sifted through every one of them that's been made for this iteration of TEW so that I can become more familiarized with the Cverse. I may participate in pickems but just know that you have a dedicated reader.

Default SWF Supreme TV: Week 1, January 2016


Location: The Theatre of Dreams (North West)
Attendance: 10,000 (Sell Out!)
Rating: 12.87 (9,655,120 Viewers)

New Year, Old Grudges

The show opens with a three-minute video package promoting tonight's main event. That match will see Valiant, Angry Gilmore, and Jack Bruce take on The Crippler, Brandon James, and Remo in a six-man tag team match! The narrator then breaks down the three different feuds being showcased in this match for anyone who isn't caught up with Supreme TV.

Despite both being present in the SWF World title scene for years, Valiant and Brandon James had seldom crossed paths prior to fighting each other last November in a tournament to find the #1 contender to the SWF World Heavyweight Championship. Valiant won that match, but James prevented Valiant from beating Remo in the final match of the tournament by coming down to the ring to distract him. The rivalry between these men continues to intensify, with plenty of brawls inside and outside the ring, and the two are now scheduled to meet each other in a singles match at When Hell Freezes Over.

And what became of Remo after he won the tournament? He went on to defeat champion Angry Gilmore at Christmas Clash 2015 to claim the SWF World Heavyweight Championship for the second time in his career. Since then, Angry Gilmore has become even more irate than usual in his quest to reclaim the championship that represents validation for years of hard work. The situation has only worsened since Rogue began stirring the pot, obviously hoping Remo and Gilmore will destroy each other so he can swoop in become a two-time World Champion himself. Rogue achieved something towards that end last week when he talked Remo and Gilmore into making Gilmore's championship rematch at When Hell Freezes Over a No Disqualification match.

Perhaps the most anticipated confrontation in this match, though, is the one between the legendary Jack Bruce and the man who tried to end his SWF career. For years, Lobster Warrior was beloved by SWF fans, but that all changed last August after he snapped and brutally assaulted Jack, sidelining him with a neck injury for several months. Lobby is now known as The Crippler, and he berates his former fans for never taking him seriously and "choosing" Jack Bruce over him. After intensive rehab, Jack Bruce returned in December and beat down The Crippler. This match is his first after returning from injury. How severely has the injury affected the six-time SWF World Heavyweight Champion? There is only one way to find out, and that is to watch Supreme TV, tonight at prime time on C.A.N.N.!

Tensions Run High



After the opening video package, pyro goes off in the arena as Duane Fry and Emma Chase welcome the audience to the show. Duane hypes up the main event six-man tag match, while Chase speculates on how badly ring rust has affected Jack Bruce. Fry maintains that the main event will be "one for the history books" regardless of Bruce's condition. The camera moves to the ring, where Angry Gilmore, Jack Bruce, and Valiant are all standing with microphones. Gilmore in particular looks beastly ahead of his match tonight, with veins pumping frantically in his forehead. With a scowl completing his threatening look, he begins his diatribe:

Angry Gilmore: Remo! The SWF World Heavyweight Champion! It looks like you've muscled your way into a bad situation yet again, because tonight, there is nowhere you can go in this arena to get away from me! And that really sucks for you, because I'm in the worst mood I've ever been in! For almost fourteen years, I busted my ass to get to the top of the mountain, to be the World Champion! And you? You beat me once at Christmas Clash, and now some people think you're better than me? They say that my reign as the World Champion was a fluke?! And you're one of those people?! BULL----! Remo, I am without a doubt the best wrestler that you have ever faced, and if you've forgotten that since we locked horns at Christmas Clash, I will be more than happy to remind you tonight! Some people say you're unbeatable, they say that you are the best the SWF has to offer. Well, I've faced the best. And I've beaten the best! And Remo, you're not even the best! Yes, you have the combination of brute strength and incredible athleticism like nobody in the SWF before you. But since I've watched our match over and over again since that night, and committed every move to memory, I have found your weaknesses, weaknesses that I will exploit at When Hell Freezes Over, and weaknesses that I will exploit tonight, when I make you--

Jack Bruce: Hey, Gilmore! Shut up for a second. It's my turn.

The crowd's cheering erupts into a wave of excitement when they hear their hero speak. Jack confidently strides into his usual position in front of the hard camera.

Jack Bruce: Ladies & gentlemen, I, the one and only Jack Bruce, have come to the Theatre of Dreams to bring the dreams of many to life when I make my glorious in-ring return tonight. As I step into the ring, women will swoon to themselves, men shall festoon themselves, and the North West region of the United States will generally enter an era of unparalleled enlightenment and productivity. The arts will boom, and when talented young artists are asked about what there muse may be, they will proudly cry out "Why, my muse is none other than Jack Bruce, the rock god of the SWF, bay-bay!" Speaking of bay-bays, all the little children in the crowd attending their first wrestling event will lift their tiny hands, reach for the sky and chant: "Jack Attack! Jack Attack! Jack Attack!" And then the Crippler... oh, the Crippler. I would pity him if not for the fact that he tried to crush my neck live on pay-per-view. As The Crippler stands across the ring from me, left with no one and nothing to provide him emotional support but his misguided hypermasculinity and a trace amount of urine, he will realize that--

Angry Gilmore: Oh my God, Jack, we've heard enough! You know something, you always have to do this. Whenever somebody else starts this show, you have to interrupt and give your two cents. It never fails... and that really pisses me off! Has it occurred to you that you are in a six-man tag team match with four other guys besides you and The Crippler? The fact that you can still be such a colossal narcissist in this situation blows my mind! It really does!

Gilmore is seething towards Jack, and Jack has a pensive expression on his face. He is clearly thinking of the right way to respond. He finally comes up with something:

Jack Bruce: Well, Gilmore, I know that I'm in a six-man tag team match. I just didn't think much of it, because my opponents are The Crippler and two guys I've beaten already, and my partners are the goody-two-shoes and the angry troll. So if you really think about it, you would realize that I can handle this situation pretty much on my own, thanks.

Angry Gilmore's intimidating sneer turns into an equally frightening psychotic grin. Jack's expression reflects his confusion. Finally, Gilmore bursts into aggressive laughter. Jack is even more puzzled, and almost seems hurt.

Angry Gilmore: Did you legitimately just say that? You were just out for four months with a neck injury, and you both call me "the angry troll" and assert that you can wrestle this match on your own? … tell you what, you've either got a death wish or you're just an utter egotist. Based on everything else you've said, I'm inclined to say the latter.

Jack Bruce is offended by that comment. He scowls and gets right into Angry Gilmore's face, who smiles hardily back at him. This sight makes Jack smile too, and he backs up.

Jack Bruce: Gilmore, lemme just say you've got attitude. I haven't been sassed like that in a long while. That reminds me, I formed a band while I was out injured, and we wrote a song! We might be doing it at When Hell Freezes Over, I don't know yet. It goes something like this... (singing) "Don't give in! Remain in control! Harness the power of rock and roll! And don't be that guy who walks around with a ---- stuck sideways like Angry Gilmore--"

Angry Gilmore: You have overstayed your welcome!

Angry Gilmore is furious now. He walks right up to Jack and prepares to take a swing. However, Valiant steps in between them.

Valiant: Guys! Guys! Knock it off! Gilmore, step back. Breathe deeply. Think about our match tonight. Think about Remo.

Gilmore is still fuming, but he doesn't look like he wants to fight Bruce anymore. Bruce has stepped back with his hands up and a cautious look on his face. Valiant looks back and forth from Gilmore to Bruce. He does not know exactly what to say to defuse the tension between these two proud, strong-willed competitors.

Valiant: So, I know that you guys have your differences. What you need to do is put all of those little things aside tonight, and focus on the big picture, the main event. Tonight you've got a shot at beating your rival in the ring ahead of When Hell Freezes Over. When you think about that, why are you wasting your energy going after each other? If you keep it up, the other guys are gonna win! I know neither of you want that. And I know the fans don't want that. And if you ask me, I think we should always give the fans what they want, right?

Sadly, Valiant's gesturing towards the crowd has resulted in a pathetic amount of cheering from the audience compared to his two partners. Jack Bruce is smirking, and Angry Gilmore is still scowling. After about ten seconds of awkward silence waiting for Valiant to get some cheers, Jack lifts his microphone to speak.

Jack Bruce: Well, Valiant, I'm sorry. I'm sorry Gilmore and I are fighting before our big match tonight. I'm sorry we can't be best friends. I'm sorry I didn't invite him to my birthday party. I'm sorry we can't call each other on the phone and watch Sesame Street together--

Valiant: Jack, Gilmore, you know that's not what I'm asking of you. I just need you two to coexist for two hours. Is that really that much to ask for?

Angry Gilmore and Jack Bruce look like they're at least contemplating Valiant's request. After a pensive silence from all three men, Angry Gilmore finally speaks.

Angry Gilmore: Well, I guess not. We have the same opponents tonight, after all. Let's focus on coming out here tonight and kicking their asses!

Valiant: Awesome! I'm so excited for this match. Jack, are you with us?

Jack Bruce: ...well, I guess I only have to team up with you guys once. Might as well live it up!

Valiant: Great! Let's do this!

The optimistic Valiant puts his fist out for a fist bump from his partners. Angry Gilmore just leaves the ring, and Jack gives Valiant a quick pity fist bump before also heading back to the locker room. Valiant follows them. Duane Fry and Emma Chase comment on what they just heard, with Duane conceding that the faces are perhaps a mismatched team and Emma declaring that they are bound to lose. Duane disagrees, arguing that the match is perfectly even due to the caliber of talent involved. Speaking of talent, Duane adds, a match between four talented competitors is about to take place, as The Amazing Bumfholes challenge the Awesomeness for the SWF World Tag Team Championship! That match will take place next!

SWF World Tag Team Championship
The Amazing Bumfholes vs. The Awesomeness {C}


& vs. &

After both teams make their entrances, Zimmy Bumfhole and Huey Cannonball start the match for their respective teams. The two enter a collar-and-elbow tie-up and start using quick chain wrestling moves. Zimmy has the upper hand at first, but Cannonball pokes him in the eye and drops him with a Russian legsweep. Cannonball gloats to the booing audience. He goes to grab Zimmy, but Zimmy shoves him away. Cannonball goes for a clothesline, but Zimmy ducks it, jumps off the ropes, and hits him a springboard dropkick! Zimmy follows that up with a front flip senton to loud cheers from the crowd. Zimmy wages a back-and forth battle against Cannonball for the next three minutes, but Cannonball gets the upper hand when he counters a suplex attempt into a DDT. He rolls this into a Fujiwara armbar, which wears down Zimmy but does not force him to tap out. An Irish whip from Cannonball throws Zimmy into The Awesomeness's corner, and Cannonball tags in his partner, Jefferson Stardust.

Stardust performs a side kick on Zimmy's arm while Cannonball holds the arm in place. Zimmy rolls in pain on the mat as the crowd jeers The Awesomeness. Stardust continues stomping on Zimmy to the crowd's dismay, eventually getting on the apron and performing a slingshot elbow drop! Stardust goes for the pin, but Zimmy manages to kick out at two. Later on, a worn-down Zimmy dodges a springboard back elbow from Stardust. Seeing his downed opponent, Zimmy crawls over to his corner to tag in his brother Randy, while Stardust tries to pick himself up. Zimmy makes the hot tag to Randy before Stardust can stop him, and Randy enters the match like a house of fire, dropkicking Stardust in the chest, elbowing Cannonball off the apron, and performing a springboard moonsault on Stardust! The crowd goes crazy for Randy, who grapples with Stardust for about two minutes. Eventually, Stardust tags out to Cannonball, but Randy continues to control the match and hits Cannonball with a Bumfhole Buster (X-Factor). Randy picks up Cannonball and Irish whips him into his corner. It seems that the Bumfholes are going to win the World Tag Team Championship for the sixth time, but then...



The Pain Alliance, Big Smack Scott and Kurt Laramee, run in and attack the Bumfholes! Laramee runs into the ring first and pounces on Randy, but when Zimmy attempts to make the save, he is attacked by Big Smack Scott! The referee calls for the bell and the Awesomeness take their titles and run, willing to take a DQ loss instead of facing the wrath of The Pain Alliance.

The Pain Rolls On




The Pain Alliance is not content with the damage they have already done to the Amazing Bumfholes. The two dominating heavyweights continue to lay waste to the brothers as the crowd loudly voices their disapproval. Zimmy attempts a running attack, but Kurt Laramee counters it into a devastating Switchblade Powerslam! Likewise, Big Smack Scott lays out Randy with an Ego Trip. The Pain Alliance celebrate the mayhem they have caused as we go to commercial break.

Good, Clean Fun



(We return with a view from a camera starts at the bottom of a trash can, facing up. We see Squeeky McClean appear holding a bag of garbage.)

Squeeky McClean: Are you fed up with the trash in the SWF today?

McClean drops the trash bag in the can, obscuring the camera. The scene immediately cuts to McClean walking in a park. This video feels like an infomercial, even though we just came back from commercial break.

Squeeky McClean: So am I! Hello there. You might know of me as Squeeky McClean, but I prefer to think of myself as a reliable arbiter of sports entertainment. I've been around the block a few times, and I know what the more important half of that phrase is: entertainment. It seems to me, though, that the self-proclaimed "diehard fans" of the SWF have forgotten this recently. The past few months have seen an influx of youngsters that have athletic ability, but don't know how to excite the average viewer. The SWF fans need to realize that millions of people all over the world can be drawn to a company like ours by their love of one superstar... like me!

McClean is being mercilessly heckled, despite this being a pre-taped vignette. They have no idea how he got the assumption that he is a crowd favorite in any way. McClean sits on a bench next to an elderly woman. He smiles at the woman until she gets off the bench and walks away.

Squeeky McClean: Don't agree with me? Perhaps I'm not explaining this problem enough for you. The golden age of the SWF is fading away, with great entertainers winding down their careers. A legion of soulless wrestling robots is invading our television sets, believed to be "the next generation" by our fans when they are ill-equipped to replace our current stars. As a representative of the golden age, I refuse to give in to these machines or the people who believe in them! Star power, quite simply, is something the SWF was built on and cannot survive without. I will fight against this insidious raid, and I am willing to work with any like-minded professionals who want to support the effort! So be on the lookout for Squeeky McClean, bringing good, clean fun to an arena near you!

Squeeky McClean smiles and gives a thumbs up to the camera. This gesture receives the worst reaction of anything on the show so far. We cut back to the arena, where Duane Fry is in disbelief that McClean has "the gall" to disrespect SWF's new signings and the fans like he just did. Emma Chase says she predicted Fry would react this way, and that she personally thinks McClean has valid points. Fry is disgusted by this comment, and transitions to our next match.

James Prudence vs. Jungle Lord

vs.

This is a standard SWF matchup to re-engage the audience after Squeeky McClean's rant. James Prudence attempts to counter the frenzied, unpredictable brawling of Jungle Lord with sound submission holds and mat work. Throughout this match, it becomes evident that Prudence is trying to wear down Jungle Lord for his dangerous finishing hold, the Prudential Pain Plan. However, Jungle Lord refuses to give in to Prudence's slick technical wrestling, and blasts him with stiff punches and kicks. Prudence argues with referee Darren Smith at one point about the legality of a back rake he used on Jungle Lord.



At that moment, Prudence's tag team partner in the Platinum Blondes, Freddie Garcia, hops onto the apron and trash-talks Jungle Lord to steal his attention. This allows Prudence to get a quick schoolboy roll-up, but Jungle Lord kicks out at two! Prudence is shocked, and starts to argue with Smith again. Jungle Lord seizes the moment and hits Prudence with a forearm to the head! Freddie Garcia gets back on the apron to trash-talk Jungle Lord some more, but Smith notices this time and yells at Garcia to stop interfering. Prudence protests the decision, allowing Jungle Lord to give him an Irish Whip into the ropes and plant him with a Jungle Jack-Jammer (Military press dropped into a Michinoku Driver)! Smith counts to three, and Jungle Lord scores the pin-fall victory.

Guess Who Saves The Day!



Neither Prudence nor Freddie Garcia are happy with the result of this match. When Jungle Lord is announced as the winner, Garcia runs into the ring and pounces on him! Prudence joins him, and the Platinum Blondes beat down Jungle Lord with vicious eye rakes and kicks, in sharp contrast to the technical wrestling Prudence showed us earlier. However, all of this stops when a certain radioactive superstar comes to save the day...



That's right, it's Captain Atomic! The SWF's only super-powered competitor runs down the ramp and dishes out some powerful offense to the Platinum Blondes, saving his fellow Hero Squad member in the process. After receiving a ferocious uppercut from Captain Atomic, Freddie Garcia runs back to the locker room as fast as he can, with Prudence not far behind him. The crowd cheers as Cap helps Jungle Lord back up to his feet and raises his hand in victory before they walk back to the locker room.

Rogue's Statement



Once the Hero Squad leaves, Rogue's music begins playing. He walks down the ramp and into the ring with a microphone is hand. He looks like he has something to say before his match tonight.

Rogue: So, as fate would have it, I am not getting the World Championship match that I deserve at When Hell Freezes Over. Once again, my accomplishments and the time I have spent in this federation go ignored by management. I was not even scheduled for a match on tonight's show at first. So I approached management and I said, "This will not stand. I will not be totally neglected on the first episode of Supreme TV in 2016." They said "Okay", and then they gave me a match tonight. Now, before we get to the match, I'm going to make another complaint, on live television.

The crowd directs a chorus of booing towards Rogue. They are tired of hearing him complain, and want to see some wrestling take place.

Rogue: At this moment, I do not have a match scheduled for When Hell Freezes Over. Not even six months ago, I was the SWF World Heavyweight Champion. This is a consequence of management letting you short-sighted fans in the crowd take control of this company. Because of you, Gil is getting another shot at the World Championship in the main event of When Hell Freezes Over. (The crowd cheers for the mention of Angry Gilmore.) I would ask all of you why you are so enamored with Gil, but I already know the truth. You really don't care that much about him personally. You are simply cheering him because he represents the triumph of your selfish whims over good business sense. (The crowd fiercely boos this, as they've taken to Angry Gilmore and want him to succeed.) Gil looks like a person you might see in real life, unlike most of the muscular superhumans seen on our programming, and he has become an "Internet darling" because of his technical ability. In those senses, he breaks the mold of a typical SWF World Champion, and that's why you support him. However, the problem is he simply does not have the charisma or the image to be a superstar, meaning he should not be given a second chance at winning the World Championship. This is why I lobbied for a World title match against Remo, and when I didn't get it... (Rogue deviously smiles.) I still used the situation to my advantage.

The crowd is booing louder than ever, not only because he mentioned the way he manipulated Gilmore and Remo last week, but also because he refuses to get on with his speech and wrestle.

Rogue: Whether you like it or not, I will be the SWF World Heavyweight Champion again soon. If that means I have to pick up the pieces after Gil and Remo kill each other in a No-Disqualification match, that's fine by me. In the meantime, I'm going to prove to management and you people why I deserve a World Championship rematch by defeating my opponent tonight. I think he already knows how this match will go, so Brett Biggins, get on out here.

Brett Biggins vs. Rogue

vs.

The crowd cheers when Brett Biggins makes his entrance: it's due to a combination of warm nostalgia and the fact that he is breaking the monotony instead of any popularity with the crowd. Unfortunately, anybody in the audience who was hoping for a competitive match remains disappointed, because this match amounts to a five-minute shellacking of the former four-time SWF World Tag Team Champion. Rogue mercifully ends this match with a smooth Crashing On and pins him for the easy victory. Darren Smith raises Rogue's hand, and we cut to commercial.

The Message of Greed

After the commercial break, a door opens and shows the inside of an old house on the large video screen above the Supreme TV stage. 1940's big band music is softly playing in the background. The camera work is reminiscent of "found-footage films", exploring different areas of the house as the music slowly gets louder, indicating that it is closer to the source. Finally, another door opens, and we see someone sitting in a vintage wing chair in front of a fireplace. The figure sips from a cup of tea and puts it on the table left of the chair. On the right of the chair is a phonograph - the source of the big band music. The figure stops the record and turns to face the camera. It is John Greed.



John Greed: Welcome to my house. (The camera changes position to show Greed at a 45° angle.) I was never able to enjoy this house before. Always on the move, looking for more wayward souls in need of direction... Lately, however, I have taken a small step back and found solace in the antiquity of this home. (Greed points at the phonograph with his thumb.) In turbulent times, some things never change... and that's the lesson I needed to learn. (The camera is now directly facing Greed, whose voice has become more determined, though his way of speaking is still slow and deliberate.) I am ready now; to face the judgment of the world again, to undertake my most ambitious spiritual mission yet. This will not be easy, but Greed... (A smile appears on Greed's face.) finds a way. My first target will be known next week. After that, I will have many more targets, until the whole of the world may follow a man who knows no fear. Some might say that I have been "treading water" for several years, and I have had a few setbacks. But it has all been building to this. 2016 will be remembered as the year John Greed... redefined sin.

A series of quickly flashing images takes over the screen while unidentifiable noise blasts out of the arena speakers. We then cut back to the commentary table, where Duane Fry and Emma Chase are sitting with shocked expressions. Duane Fry says we just got a glimpse into the twisted mind of John Greed, one of the most unpredictable men in the business. Chase says she sincerely hopes whoever Greed may be targeting is prepared next week.

Eric Eisen vs. Mikey Lau
vs.

A viewer could gather Eric Eisen would rather not be wrestling Mikey Lau tonight, not even taking off his tank top. In the opposite corner, Lau looks ready to compete, shadowboxing in the corner. The bell rings, and Lau hits Eric with a swift side kick. Eric is walking away from him, but Lau stays close to him and continues using long kicks and punches. Eventually, Eric gets angry and punches Lau hard in the face, sending him to the mat. Eric mounts Lau and punches him until second-hour referee Ric Young calls him off. Eric obliges, and then immediately undoes a turnbuckle cover while Young is checking on Lau. Eric gives Lau an Irish whip into the exposed turnbuckle and charges, spearing Lau into the corner. Eric grabs Lau's legs and prepares to stomp on his stomach, but Lau kicks him in the face and gets back up. Lau hits Eric with a flurry of martial arts strikes, culminating with a back hook kick that sends Eric crashing to the mat. The match continues like this for eight minutes, with Eric cheating to get the advantage and Lau rallying back with striking and amateur wrestling takedowns. The contest is more back-and-forth than most of us probably expected, and it takes some outside interference to decide a winner.



Squeeky McClean, whose vignette aired earlier tonight, is shown in the front row holding a sign saying "GOOD, CLEAN FUN!" Lau looks at the sign and turns his back to Eric, but grabs Eric before he can capitalize. Lau continues wearing down Eric, but then McClean takes out another sign, saying "NO MORE ROBOTS" Lau is distracted by this sign and takes his focus off Eric, allowing him to slip out of Lau's hold and start stomping on him. Lau manages to get back on his feet, but McClean takes out his last sign, saying "MAKE SWF SUPREME AGAIN", causing Duane Fry to ask the referee to kick McClean out of his seat. Lau finally jumps out of the ring and asks McClean if they "have a problem". This lapse of judgment from Lau allows Eric to throw him back-first into the ring apron. Eric rolls Lau back in the ring, picks him up, and hits him with the Supremacy (a combination of a forward Russian legsweep and a bulldog). Young counts the pinfall, and Eric Eisen has won this match. The crowd boos Eisen as his hand is raised, and McClean is shown celebrating in the front row.

The Villains Train



The camera goes backstage, where Remo and Brandon James are both wailing on separate punching bags. The Crippler walks towards the camera. He has obviously been training too, with sweat glistening on his face.

The Crippler: Tonight, I have a chance to prove to the world that Jack Bruce should have never returned to the Supreme Wrestling Federation. When he faces the combined fury of Remo, Brandon, and myself, he will either forfeit the match, or he will be forced into retirement. (The crowd loudly chides The Crippler, who is making sinister threats towards their hero Jack Bruce.) Oh, you don't think so? What would you know about the challenge of facing such an elite team? You've never stepped in the ring all your life. Every Tuesday you wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, and cheer for Jack Bruce on TV. Meanwhile, I have put more blood, sweat, and passion into this business than any of you have put into anything. Yet you push me aside time and time again to cheer for an arrogant degenerate. Well, I was too stupid to know better for many years, but this past summer I finally saw the light. Angry Gilmore, who you people hated for years, somehow rode the wave of your affection to the World Championship. That was the moment I realized that my hard work didn't matter. Something like that would never happen for me. So I did the next best thing, and I beat Jack Bruce half to death. Ever since then, I have moved closer to World Championship contention every month. And now Jack Bruce is back to derail my ascension. What impeccable timing.

The crowd loudly cheers at Jack Bruce's name. They cannot wait to see The Crippler get beaten up in the main event.

The Crippler: But don't you realize? That's simply not going to happen! Look at the odds stacked against the man. Look at Remo. (The camera focuses on Remo training, with Crippler standing next to him.) The current SWF World Champion. 280 pounds of pure muscle. Incredible strength combined with shocking athleticism. And most importantly, he is motivated to squash the cockroach, Angry Gilmore. (Remo grunts and lands a particularly stiff blow on the punching bag when Gilmore's name is mentioned. The camera pans to Crippler standing next to Brandon James.) Brandon James. "Big Money". 6'6" and 315 pounds. Could make most men's faces look like raw meat-- and he has. He hopes to add Valiant's name to that list tonight. (James reacts to Valiant's name the same way Remo reacted to Gilmore. The Crippler walks away from both men.) There is no way that Jack Bruce, who recently returned from injury, can take on any of these men. His partners have the same chance. So tonight, my elite group comes together, and your heroes die. Don't you miss it!

Joe Sexy and Paul Huntingdon vs. American Machine and Joey Morgan

& vs. &

Last week, Joey Morgan faced Joe Sexy in a non-title match, which Sexy won due to the interference of Paul Huntingdon. Huntingdon and Sexy beat up Morgan after the match, and American Machine came to save him, leading to this tag team match. Morgan and Sexy start the match against each other, and Morgan takes down Sexy with an armlock. Morgan continues to work on his arm, but Sexy eventually fights back. He gets the upper hand at a few points during his scuffles with Morgan, but whenever he starts to dominate the match, he stops to show off to American Machine's valet, BJ O'Neill. O'Neill is not receptive to the advances of the aging Sexy, and Machine yells at him to stop. These missed opportunities by Sexy allow Morgan to recover and ground him with technical wrestling moves.

As we return from a commercial break in the middle of the match, Sexy is trying to impress O'Neill by flexing with his back turned to Morgan. This allows Morgan to make a hot tag to American Machine, who immediately starts pounding away on Sexy. Machine slams Sexy's face into the canvas, and Ric Young asks him to stop. Machine obliges, and when Sexy gets up, Machine wears him down with old-school punches and power moves. Sexy counters a backbreaker by punching Machine in the back, and runs over to his corner to tag in Huntingdon. Machine uses similar offense on Huntingdon, but the younger man cheats quite often to escape his powerful opponent. On the apron, Sexy is showing off to the crowd. Then, as Machine is beating down Huntingdon, Sexy tries to start flirting with O'Neill again, who is repulsed by his behavior. This is the breaking point for Machine, who charges towards Sexy and punches him right in the jaw, sending him tumbling to the floor! The crowd cheers, and O'Neill laughs. However, Huntingdon rolls up Machine with a handful of tights, and picks up a tainted victory! After the match, Huntingdon runs to the locker room, with Machine hot on his tail. Meanwhile, Joe Sexy is getting up on the outside, but Joey Morgan steps down from the apron and backhands him hard, sending him back down to the floor.

Main Event Six-Man Tag Team Match:
Angry Gilmore, Jack Bruce, & Valiant vs. Brandon James, Remo, and The Crippler

, , & vs. , , &

There is a big-fight feel in the Theatre of Dreams tonight as our main event is finally taking place. Angry Gilmore is starting the match for the fan favorites, and Brandon James is out first for their opponents. Despite the major size advantage of James, Gilmore brings the fight to him early on, executing some slick chain grappling. James powers his way out of a headlock, though, and begins to use his strength advantage from there. He batters Gilmore with heavy punches, and throws him chest-first into a corner of the ring as the crowd jeers James. He then whips Gilmore into the ropes, and when Gilmore attempts to rebound, he catches him with a big scoop slam! When James attempts to attack him on the ground, Gilmore catches his arm and spins him onto the mat. Gilmore continues to work James's arm for the next few minutes, with the crowd cheering him on as he uses good technical moves. He applies a hammerlock, but James counters the move by elbowing him with his free arm. James then performs a ring-shaking powerbomb on Gilmore! James turns away from his opponent and begins show-boating as the crowd roars in disapproval.

Fortunately for the fan favorites, James's bragging allows Gilmore a chance to make a quick tag to Valiant. James turns around right into a big clothesline from his rival! The crowd is behind Valiant as he performs a quick series of powerful moves on James. The barrage culminates in a Patriot Missile (shoulder block) on James from the top rope! Valiant goes for the pin, but James kicks out at two. James begins to rally back against Valiant before throwing him to his team's corner. James tags in Remo, and they perform a double-team move on Valiant. Remo picks up Valiant, and the two begin slugging each other. After several minutes of brawling, Remo whips Valiant into the ropes and catches him with a uranage side slam. Remo picks him up again, and Valiant pushes him away. Valiant goes back to his corner and tags in Jack Bruce. The crowd erupts as the SWF's biggest name steps back into the ring for the first time since his injury, and Bruce spends a few seconds simply taking in the ovation he is receiving. Remo attempts a punch, but Bruce ducks and sweeps out his legs. This inspires further cheering from the crowd as he continues to bask in their praise. Bruce then drops his knee on the World Champion, before returning to admiring his crowd. He picks Remo up and goes for a reverse STO... but Remo counters the move into the Lumbar Puncture (STO backbreaker)! The cheers of the crowd become raucous booing, which intensifies once Remo tags The Crippler in.

The Crippler sprints towards Jack Bruce and kicks him in the chest as he tries to get up, inspiring further loud booing. He then applies a choke on Bruce, which the referee forces him to release. After that, The Crippler begins using technical moves on Bruce, most of which target his injured neck. Eventually, he applies a sleeper hold on Bruce, but Bruce muscles his way out of the hold to a loud cheer from the crowd! From there, it's Jack Bruce comeback time, as the icon begins using his greatest hits on The Crippler, with pauses in between so Bruce can ham it up for the crowd. After hitting The Crippler with an atomic drop, Bruce heads to the corner and calls for his finishing move - the New York Minute! He backs up into his team's corner, but just before Bruce can hit his move, Angry Gilmore tags himself in! Bruce is aghast, and looks back at a seething Angry Gilmore who tells him to get back on the apron. Bruce reluctantly complies, and as The Crippler is trying to get up, Angry Gilmore hits him with a devastating Anger Management (MVP's Drive-By Kick)! Gilmore gets the cover, and Ric Young counts 1... 2... 3!

Mayhem Ends The Show


Following his pin on The Crippler, the referee raises Angry Gilmore's hand, and he begins to celebrate. However, Jack Bruce immediately gets in Gilmore's face. The referee releases Gilmore's arm, and Gilmore begins to argue with Bruce. Ever the hero, Valiant attempts to defuse their argument again, but Gilmore and Bruce just become angry with Valiant for interrupting their argument. Suddenly, The Crippler charges at Gilmore from behind, raining punches on him. Valiant sees Gilmore in danger and attempts to pry Crippler off of him, but Valiant gets kicked in the face by Brandon James! Jack Bruce finally gets involved now, fighting Crippler while Gilmore is downed and James is dominating Valiant. Gilmore eventually recovers and helps Valiant fight back against James, with the two eventually landing a slick double-team maneuver on James. At this moment, Remo, who has been biding his time during this fight, charges across the ring and hits Gilmore with a massive spear! Valiant trades punches with Remo, but they are interrupted when James recovers and starts beating down Valiant again. The fight continues with each man battling his rival. Finishers are traded between everyone, and Jack Bruce and The Crippler even find their way into the crowd. While referees and security fail to break up the massive brawl, Duane Fry is calling for somebody to reign in this chaos, and Emma Chase reluctantly admits that she agrees with him. The show concludes in a scene of utter chaos, with weapons such as trash cans and chairs now being used in the melee. Duane Fry finally admits that he hopes the ending of tonight's show won't be emblematic of the state of the SWF in 2016.
